Outting in ink

I was changing the ink in my printer and the long black and brown cord is hanging out now. i dont know what it was attached to. it isnt completely dissconnected though. it forms a large loop from behind the ink installers. is it broken or did i mistakenly pull it out too far.

The part you're describing is the drive belt for the print head carriage. If it was pulled loose, you probably also damaged a clear plastic strip called an encoder strip. I would strongly recommend getting it properly serviced -- they can then check for proper functionality at the same time.

The belt or cord that moves the ink cartridges is hanging out


You need to remove the top cover to see where it goes, there's a spring loaded pulley on one side and a motor pulley on the far other side.

Epson 1400 won't print blacks


Hi

Many problems regarding Ink with Epson relate to using cheap ink consumables. I recommend you buy original Epson black ink catridge. I know its more expensive but you should see the black ink clear.

Be sure to run head alignment and clean printer option first with the current black ink then replace with the new original Epson ink catridge

Thanks

Andy

The black is printing dark redish brown


Dear friend, your Black Ink Cartridge is Empty thats why your printer is using the Colour Cartridge to produce the Black Colour. This is the reason you are having Dark Reddish Brown colour instead of Black.

My printer does not print black & White documents


You just have to clean the printer head or change it.
Happend to me and solved it:
Open the top the way you use to change an ink cartrige...Unplug the power cord.. the ink tray will stay accessible.
Save your ink in some plastic wrap.
Just where you pull the ink cartriges is the head. Lift the little arm on right top of the assembly and pull toward you the black plastic kind of container..(for ink cartriges)..
that is where the head is attached. DO NOT FORCE anything..it should come easily.
At first place in warm clear water..use rubber gloves..often change water. When it looks quite clean..it is not. Unscrew the two littles screws holding the flat ribbon tip where the ink should go out..Beware...lift it gently..
underneat there is a small rubber part..just lift the end covering the black ink exit...Now pour all this in warm water mixed with Windex for some time and change the water till it comes quite clear. Now blow air from a compressed air can in the black ink canal..you will be surprise to see the amount of plugged ink coming out from there.Rince, dry with compressed air,screw back parts,place everything back and try an head alingment test to see your Black here again..
